Overview


An updated edition just in time for Steven Spielberg's animated film The Adventures of Tintin, premiering December 23, 2011, produced by Peter Jackson and starring Daniel Craig, Simon Pegg, and Jamie Bell as Tintin

 

The silhouette of Tintin—a young man wearing golf pants, running with a white fox terrier by his side—is easily one of the most recognizable visual icons of the modern world. In fact Tintin is nine years older than Superman and 10 years older than Batman, having first appeared in Belgium in 1929. This fully revised and expanded edition of this popular pocket-sized reference book offers a comprehensive and critical overview of the Tintin series. Starting with the character's humble origins in the children's supplement of a Belgian Catholic newspaper, the authors track Tintin's development and success throughout the decades, including the stormy World War II years. Each book is analyzed in detail, both in the context of the series, and in its larger framework: that of the comic's medium and of society in general. The authors also look at the massive industry that has developed around the figure of Tintin, the trivia, the anecdotes, the movies and television series, and the multitude of Tintin spin-offs.

    At Transfiguration I transformed a cup into a santa elf. Everyone clapped. The elf said" Merry Christmas". Everyone laughed. I made the hover over to the North Pole. After the elf got to the North Pole a present appeared. It was a spare wand. It was soo smooth I touched everyday. At Defence aganist the Dark Arts, Snape taught us how to use the shielding charm(Protego) I was first "Stupefy" he said"Protego"I said. After I said Protego he was stunned I bowwed. Everyone clapped. Even Aubery did too. After Snape was unstunned. He said"well done". It was Lunchtime. There was steak, roast beef, chicken, pork, and broccoli. Harold tried to try again. But I stunned him. McGonagall came and said "what is going on?" I said "Harold tried to harm me" "10 points from Slytherin" she said. Harold said"WHAT?!? But he stunned me?!?" Then McGonagall looked at me. "How do you know the Stunning Charm?" She said conserned. "This" I showed her my NOOK. "What is a NOOK?" She asked. "This thing," I said. She looked at it. THE NEXT PART IS AT RISE OF THE GUARDIANS IF YOU WANT TO BE IN MY STORY GO TO CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY IF YOU WERE WAITING FOR THE NEXT PART FOR 2 DAYS THAT IS BECAUSE I WAS AT MY GRANDMA'S HOUSE TO VISIT.
